Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre sent shockwaves through the mixed martial arts (MMA) community when he partnered with ex-Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney to found the Mixed Martial Arts Athletes Association (MMAAA).

During last November’s press conference, St-Pierre named UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor as an example of fighter who can make million-dollar paydays and still get shafted by the promotion.

Something “Notorious” took exception to during his recent Q&A

Fake or not, Conor. I much prefer the fake guy that improves the prospects and opportunities for the other athletes in the sport over the "real guy" that would exploit anyone and everyone else for an extra cent (i.e., you).

He's the UFC's favorite type of fighter; he'd let every other fighter starve to death so long as he gets his money. No risk in it for the UFC. When Conor's gone they'll never mention his name again and promote the next "Big" fighter after him.
